Yesterday (Saturday) I had planned to check out the famed outdoors arts and craft show that happens now every July here in Elliott County -- fondly and proudly called "Minnie Adkins Day". Minnie is the kind who breaks any glass ceiling in her way, and she is so supportive of everyone else's work and talents. She is a Kentucky treasure. We all win because she has persisted!
But, true confession, I got involved with a project at the house this morning, which caused me to forget the time, and I missed the whole thing! I had planned to post photos from there today, but instead I will be including a photo or two in a future post, when I can round some up from other artists in attendance. I sure hope the heat didn't make anyone sick. Water, water, water!
However, I soon realized I now had a great excuse to feature some of the photos my daughter makes, with her cell phone. She has a wonderful eye. I love her work. I knew she had made some really good ones this week. I am proud to share some of them in this post. Thank you, Rebecca!!

|Oh, the light, at the pond! I love this photo.|

Memories of early April:
|How to pick strawberries AND keep at least one hand clean enough to make a photo....|
|Oops, I'm caught in the act.....|

Again, thank you, Rebecca, and I love you -- from your mom
